Why are eyebrows so important and what are the options for perfect brows?

Complete brow makeover, henna brows and microblade/cosmetic tattoo options for eyebrows

Eyebrows are one of the most popular trends in beauty and there’s a good reason why. When done properly, eyebrows can make your face look symmetrical and add definition to your features. Full, naturally shaped, well groomed brows are the current trend, and due to their youth-enhancing property, we feel it likely to remain that way for a very long time. 

However, not all of us were blessed with lots of brow hair to work with, and many of us are victims of the over-plucked thin brow trend of the 80s and 90s which have permanently damaged the hair follicle. Sometimes, age and illness can thin the brows out, or leave them patchy and lacking structure and shape. 

Thankfully, there are options for all of us! If you are lucky enough to have reasonably full,  brows that need a little work, or brows that are hairy but fair and undefined, a complete brow makeover may be the best option for you. The complete brow makeover available with senior brow technicians who have had years of experience in the beauty industry particularly in brow transformations. The makeover includes a consultation as well as complete reshape, tinting, waxing, tweezing and trimming the brows and an interactive makeup application so you know how to get the best results from your brows and how to use brow makeup to further enhance them. 

If you’re looking for a longer lasting but still temporary brow option, henna brows are the best option. New to Lady Lash, henna brow allows you to create bolder, more deeply coloured brows, filling in any sparseness or gaps, like a temporary brow tattoo. There is a much wider colour range than standard tints so your brows can be perfectly customised for your hair and complexion. Henna brows last for approximately 4-6 weeks on the hair (those with grey brow hairs will love how long it lasts!) and will stain the skin for up to 10 days. It offers a bolder brow than standard tint, and due to the skin staining properties , allows you to test out a new brow shape, which is wonderful if you are considering cosmetic tattoo as the next step.  

If you find your brows to be naturally sparse, difficult to create a desirable shape and you prefer not to have to draw them on or fill them in every day, a more permanent solution may be the way to go! Cosmetic tattoo has been a lifesaver for those of us with thin or non-existent eyebrows and can be achieved with powderfill, microblading or a combination of both techniques. Powderfill fills in the sparse areas of your brows to create a fuller effect, great for those with an overall existing brow shape who just need a little fill-in. Microblading is currently the most popular cosmetic tattoo option, as the tattoo mimics the natural hair strokes of the eyebrow. This can be used to completely create a new shape of brow, make your existing brows more symmetrical or just fill out your natural shape to avoid wearing makeup every-day. A combination of both methods can be used and all option, and what is suitable for your skin type can be explored in a consultation with your brow artist. 

As eyebrows are crucial for framing the face, it is important to get your brows done by someone with experience – whether it be just a wax and tint, or you are going for a more permanent option such as cosmetic tattoo. Our brow artists, as well as those from Brow Game  are highly experienced in will take the time to listen and consult with you, in order to achieve your most perfect brow!
